Charity Clark was sworn in as Vermont Attorney General on January 5, 2023. She grew up in southern Vermont, and is the proud daughter, granddaughter, and great grand-daughter of Vermont small grocers. She grew up stocking shelves and working the cash register at her family’s store, gaining first-hand knowledge of the challenges small businesses owners face.
She attended the University of Vermont and was a policy analyst in the Vermont Governor’s Office before attending Boston College Law School. In 2005, Charity’s legal career began as an associate at Downs Rachlin Martin in Burlington and later at Orrick in New York City. Charity was hired as an Assistant Attorney General in the Public Protection Division by former Attorney General Bill Sorrell in 2014. She served as Chief of Staff under Attorney General T.J. Donovan from 2018 to 2022.
As AG, she will continue to build on the progress made while she was chief of staff — from protecting consumers to fighting back against climate change. She will always put Vermont families first and work to keep them safe every step of the way.
